Where to get it: The Children’s Place, Nordstrom
Price range: $15 – $60

We all love treating ourselves to a new outfit for the big day, so why not our little ones? If she’s getting to the age where she takes pride in her wardrobe, then a new sparkly dress or fashionable romper could be the perfect gift.

 5. Family game

Where to get it: Nintendo, GameStop

Instead of fighting to get them off their electronic devices, why not embrace it this Christmas with a game the whole family can enjoy?

 6. A day out

Price range: $20 – $80

It may not be as fun to unwrap but finding out they’re going to their favorite theme-park or activity center could make their Christmas the best ever.

Groupon has great deals and discounts for local activities, from ice skating and paintball, to soft play centers and arcades. If they love the big screen, a trip to the cinema or theatre could also fuel their excitement.

7. Bedtime reading

Where to get it: Barnes & Noble
Price range: $5 – $30

When they’re all grown up, it’s the little things they’ll look back on fondly, like reading a bedtime story. So a collection of new books could be a great way to keep the tradition going into the new year.

Barnes & Noble have great books for kids, from inspiring stories of important women in history, to imaginative tales of dragons, magic and adventure.

8. Doll house

Where to get it: Target, Wayfair
Price range: $25 – $250

A doll house is a great gift for little girls. From traditional Victorian houses to modern city apartments, they can make-believe to their heart’s content.

You don’t need to stick to stereotypes either, Wayfair and Target both offer up creative doll houses, from fire stations to Viking castles.

9. Musical instrument

Where to get it: Guitar Center, Kohl’s
Price range: $20 – $100

Build their skills and give them a gift that could help shape their future with a musical instrument.

Both Guitar Center and Kohl’s have the tools to fuel their musical talents. A kids drum kit can cost around $20 up to $100, depending on their age and number of pieces. Meanwhile, a junior guitar is around three quarters the size of a normal guitar and is a great steppingstone to starting their own garage band.

10. A pet

Where to get it: Petco, PetSmart
Price range: $15 – $150

A pet isn’t just for Christmas, but if your little girl has started to show responsibility and dedication, it may be time to finally cave into her pleas. Plus, adopting from a rescue center is a great way to give a helpless animal a new home.

Once you’ve found the perfect pet, places like Petco and PetSmart have all supplies and accessories you need – including training classes and day camps.
